Curry is the most disgusting thing I've ever had.
I'm speechless. Curry is glorious, plus unless you've had alot of time on your hands I doubt you've had every type of curry.
Especially grilled corpses. Mesquite grilled corpses.
And I'm not sure I've ever encountered gristle in a burger.
If there was ever a post that demonstrated the truth in the old chestnut, "There's no accounting for taste", it would be this one. I refuse to acknowlege the reality of the maggot cheese.
I'm just really, really, really, picky - and curry was just...eck.
Well it must have been a certain kind of curry. Not all of them taste the same you know. For example Tandoori Chicken tastes completly different to Sagaloo. You shouldn't give up until you've tried somemore. If you tell the waiter at a decent resturant what you like chances are they can make you a curry that you will like.
Right, saying 'I don't like curry' is like saying 'I don't like soup'.
I'm not sure Tandoori Chicken really qualifies as a curry btw. Are there any Indians here who can clarify this? According to Camilla Panjabi who's written my favourite Indian cooking book curry basically means sauce, although the origin of the word is not completely clear.
Saladitos: dried, salted plums. Apparently some Mexicans dig them, but I found them unpalatable.
Then there was rose petal icecream. An abomination, to say the least.
Cream style corn. My wife served some up last night, and it just looked like a bowl of steaming vomit. I haven't touched the stuff in about 30 years, and I wasn't going to take it up again last night! Granted, this is nowhere near as disgusting as maggot cheese, but it is something you have a much greater chance of encountering in your everyday life.
I agree about the ketchup. A good burger needs a couple of slices of fresh tomato on it, and some nice mayonaise. Ketchup is just vile.
Don't agree about the butter. Sometimes butter is simply better than margarine, for example if you have a nice sourdough bread with cheese. And sometimes, goose fat is even better, depending on the cheese and the sourdough bread you have.
Sometimes butter is better than margarine? Hell, butter is always better than margarine. Who doesn't like butter? Margarine is solidified vegetable oil. Blech.
And it's quite possible that the ketchup in England is vile. I know that the ketchup in Canada tastes funny. However, the ketchup in the US is mighty tasty. Mighty tasty indeed.
ya, ketchup overseas sometimes sucks. american ketchup (heinz specifically) is great.
In my book if it's served at an Indian resturant it's a curry.
For me, pesto. Can't bear the look or smell of it.
Natto... The Japanese fermented soybeans stuff. It looks like snot.
Cauliflower is the most disgusting food ever.
omg...never heard/read that!
Hershey's is up there in the list!
(yeah, spoiled European with Lindt, Rausch, Ritter Sport and Milka available. loving it.)
Other than that, chips with vinegar as well as vinegar flavoured crisps.
I wrestled in HS. One look at a cauliflower ear and I've never been able to go near the stuff. Plus it makes people fart. Oh yeah...and people think all they have to do is bring cauliflower, broccoli, and ranch dressing to a potluck when I (well, my wife, actually) have gone to the trouble of actually cooking something. Come to think of it, cauliflower may be the source of all that's evil in the world.
Gross food... Ok
I hate brussell sprouts and baked beans.
Both those foods can make some unpleasent noises and smells.
Absolutely vile stuff. How people even get past the smell to even try this stuff is beyond me.
